Lenny Lawrence from Kenya on Today
This morning, when we went to see Lenny, we thought that we'd find him in bed. But his mom who told us that Lenny requested a walker to go see the other kids in the ward! He walked confidently down the hall. "I am eagerly waiting for the day I heal so that I can play football with my friends as well ride a bicycle," he responded to us when we asked about one thing he wishes to do when he heals. He will remain in the ward today and might be discharged tomorrow. Please continue to pray for him and his healing so that he can be able to play with his friends!

"I miss home, I miss my friends. Actually when I get home I will invite all of them to come and see me and make them understand why I will not be visiting them," Stephanie informed us. She had a wonderful night and the nausea ended yesterday evening! Thank you for praying for that! Alice, one of our physiotherapists, took her through the corridors using a walker as her Dad and Mom watched her every move and step. She is up and ready to get back home! She was discharged today and will return in January, please continue praying for our smart girl!

Lewis from Kenya on Yesterday
Lewis is going home today and that’s exciting! We caught him unaware trying to blow a balloon and use a phone at the same time. Before he left, our physiotherapist took him through how to use crutches as his dad was sorting out the medicine that Lewis would take home. We hope to see Lewis again in six weeks time!

Lenny Lawrence from Kenya on Yesterday
Lenny had a restful night and woke up feeling very good! When we saw him this morning, he was lying on his bed talking to his mum. We were curious about the conversation they had, so his mum told us that he was giving her a list of all the things he wants done after he is healed. “He loves playing soccer a lot. The only problem is that he falls a lot too because of his legs!” His mum told us. Among the things she was asked to buy were, a bicycle and a ball. As you can see, Lenny has some really fun plans for the future when his transformation is complete! For us, the most amazing thing is that he has no doubt in his mind that he will be healed and this gives us so much joy - thank you for your part in making this young man's dreams and hopes possible!

Stephanie woke up feeling a bit nauseated today. She was given something to help her with the nausea and her mum was asked to give her a lot of water. The nausea hasn’t completely gone away, but our smart friend is focusing on other things like cartoons and getting some sleep. Steph will be taken through how to use crutches today and tomorrow. Would you please pray that her nausea goes away and that she is able to eat some food? Thank you so much for being with Stephanie throughout her treatment journey!

Shavin from Kenya on Yesterday
Shavin came to clinic today to see the doctor. His mum had a few concerns when she saw how Shavin’s little fingers and toes looked. The doctor was able to reassure her that her son was going to be well after the intervention process. His mum was also advised on how to clean the wound and we will see them again in a month's time. Thank you for your prayers for him!

Stavin from Kenya on Yesterday
Stavin personally seems to think mobile clinic is fun! “He likes the colors and after, the sweet,” his mom told us. Our spiritual department is awesome about giving our kiddos things to do as they wait – including giving them coloring, balloons, and maybe even sweets! Stavin is doing well and we’re grateful. He needed assessed for a shoe raise since we thought one of his legs was shorter than the other, but our expert on shoe raises didn’t think so. Stavin will hopefully get a boot/shoe made for him though and he’ll wear it with his orthotic once some things get sorted. We’ll see him next in May on clinic (if not sooner) where he’ll hopefully get more colors and sweets!

Elvis from Kenya on Yesterday
“We were talking about his school life,” Pastor Peter explained of their conversation. “I asked if he tells other boys to hit him here!” You see, Elvis wears a spine jacket and if he was wearing a sweater over his jacket, you may not know it was there and if someone playfully punched him, they would meet something very hard! “He was saying: ‘No, he’s a good man. He doesn’t do that.’” Elvis is a very sweet boy and a good man. We like him. And he even got to talk to his friend named Elvis on the phone! Elvis is one of our Storytellers at CURE Kenya who isn’t on mobile clinic this time. The doctor said Elvis (the good man one) is doing well, so the next time we’ll see him will be at the end of May. Maybe he’ll come with stories from school about all the ways he’s been a ‘good man!’

Collins from Kenya on Yesterday
Sometimes clubfoot is stubborn. That seems to be the case for Collins. We heard from the doctor that he may actually need a fusion (probably at the ankle). Other kinds of surgery only help so much. While this is a bummer and it means Collins may not be done with his healing journey, for now he can have a rest and enjoy life. We’ll see him in a year! In the meantime, please pray that life will go on in the best possible way for him and that when we see him again, the doctors will know just what to do!

Faith from Kenya on Yesterday
Someone is progressing in her healing and it’s Faith! Today’s progress included getting measured for an orthotic and being scheduled to come to CURE Kenya in a couple weeks to pick up her orthotic. Next step in her progress is surgery for her other foot next year. As she continues on this journey, please pray for every step she must take – physically and medically. Pray that the pain won’t be too great and that the reward will be so much greater!

David from Kenya on 2 days ago
It has been six weeks since we last saw David and he is back with us for his check up. His pins need to be removed, a process that can be painful but he is a brave boy and we're confident he will do well! “We just pray that he will be well, and will be ready for his other surgery,” Mama David told us. We will see David in three weeks time when he comes back to get the new cast that was put on today, removed. He will also be taken through some light physiotherapy exercises to help him recover his mobility. Please be praying for courage for David!

Esther from Kenya on 2 days ago
“We were not very good at attending clinic for reviews because of many reasons so recently I noticed that Esther’s clubfoot had recurred. That is why we are back,” Esther’s mum explained to us. The last time Esther and her mum set foot in CURE Kenya was two years ago and sadly, circumstances haven’t allowed them to be able to come for clinics. Esther needs a new procedure done and her mum is hoping that God will be able to provide for them. Please pray for Esther and her mum as they plan to come back at a later date for surgery!

Elizabeth from Kenya on 2 days ago
If there’s one thing that comes easily for Elizabeth, it’s giggling. Throughout our time with her today, we heard her laughter LOTS and it’s a beautiful thing. We’re so thankful God created laughter, especially the laughter of children! We’re especially thankful Elizabeth can giggle because unfortunately she’s worn her cast for too long. There was a mix up with her return date and her healing has regressed. She saw the physio to see what range of motion she can begin to have, and she’ll come for admission on Sunday to do some manipulation in theatre and also physio to help stretch her leg. Please pray for the next few days for our girl!

The beauty of mobile clinic is that it’s mobile. We’re not limited to four walls and a chair. Nicole showed up at clinic and the doctor needed an x-ray, so she left to get one from somewhere and made it back as we were packing up. But, that didn’t stop Dr. Mailu from seeing her and then suggested that she do physio someplace local to aid in her continued healing. She’s healing well which means the next time we see her will be at the end of March. Maybe at that time she’ll be inside those four walls when the doctor sees her!

Anita from Kenya on 2 days ago
Poor Anita’s fingers are rather stiff. “She’s losing her advantage,” Dr. Mailu told us. She needs physio to stretch her fingers more than what we can help with when on clinic, so now she’ll need to continue at a place close to her home. As she does this, please pray for her fingers to stretch so that the next time we see her on clinic at the end of January, she’ll have gotten that advantage back!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
